Home & Family Show, Hallmark Channel: Behind the Scenes!

by / 4 Comments / 338 View / October 31, 2012

One of the most unique and entertaining shows to emerge recently for daytime television is Hallmark's Home & Family Show, a daily, two-hour live show!

Created by Woody Fraser, and his multi-award winning production company, Home & Family is a home and garden talk show hosted by Paige Davis, (Trading Spaces) and Mark Steines, (E Entertainment).


I have to admit, I'm a bit partial to the show since I've been appearing as a garden lifestyle expert and enjoying putting together my gardening segments!

Don't we need more garden programs friends?



I dropped in on the set during taping of their Halloween show to prepare for my garden segment, airing on Friday, Nov. 2, 2012 between 10AM and 12PM PST on the Hallmark channel.


Boy, was the cast and crew having a good time!

Nothing like a group of "Hollywood" people in costume.

Expect the unexpected!



Paige and Mark were dressed up as "zombie" versions of Marilyn Monroe and Elvis Presley.


Those of you who are familiar with Paige Davis, know that she's a Broadway actor with musical theater chops, so donning other personas comes natural to her.

Mark Steines, on the other hand, has established himself as a TV journalist and talented on-camera interviewer of the powerful and famous.



As the show has evolved during the past four weeks, Mark has revealed a very playful side and his inner "character actor" is emerging.

This guy is not only a gracious host, DIY enthusiast, and  skilled photographer, he's funny and a talented actor too!


Who knew?


Here are some behind the scenes photos of the Home & Family show, Halloween program.

If you get the Hallmark channel on your cable package, watch my appearance on Friday, Nov. 2 as I demonstrate how to create a raised garden planter with straw bales!

  1. Thanks for reaching out. All taken care of.

  2. Hi Shirley,

    I am trying to reach my daughter who is a production assistant on the Home and Family Show.  Her name is Lilly McCloskey and she has lost her phone.  I have located it at a restaurant she went to. However, I don't have a number to call at the channel. Can you help?

    Sorry, it's not a gardening question. Just trying to get my Little-girl. I'm in FL.


    Stephen – 904-415-1863
